I've been to all three, though didn't spend an extended amount of time in Linz. My favorite of the three is Salzburg. I didn't find it to be touristy, or crowded, at all. We saw more Mozart touristy "crap" than Sound of Music items. We stayed there two nights, pre-cruise, last year, and are scheduled to stay there two nights, post cruise, next year. Cesky Krumlov is cute, and quaint, and a photographer's dream. Linz is more an everyday, modern city, and I would make it my third choice.
